Ambient Intelligence or ubiquitous computing is the technology vision of the future. Ambient Intelligence will provide applications and services to users anywhere and anytime. To ensure acceptability and pleasurability, Ambient Intelligence systems should also be socially intelligent. This requires research and design sensitive to the user's emotions. 3E is an emotion assessment method for collecting rich data of users' emotions and related context whilst using an application or service. 3E is a self report method allowing both pictorial and verbal reporting. In this paper, 3E is preliminary validated by comparing it to two other emotion assessment methods, SAM and Emocards. Also, the reliability of the analysis of 3E results is evaluated. It appears that 3E is a promising method for obtaining profound information from complex user experience and thus complementing more formal methods.
